That is correct Sunita.  Now that we've explored the mismatches, I thought it appropriate to start quantifying the level of the spurs caused by these mismatches.

Re : Interleaving Spurs: Letís Look at the Math
There are several challenges to look out for while interleaving ADCs.  Spurs appear in the output band that outcomes from the inadequacies related with inter leaving ADCs.  The deficiencies are essentially misalliances between the 2 ADCs that are interleaved.  There are 4 elementary misalliances that outcome in spurs in the production of band.  These are gain mismatch, offset mismatch bandwidth mismatch and timing mismatch.

We look at using a DC/DC converter along with an LDO to drive the ADC power supply inputs.
I thought it would be good to continue looking at the example I gave in my last blog where we looked using fewer LDOs and combining power supply rails on an ADC while maintaining isolation with ferrite beads.
There are some disadvantages when driving low input supply voltages, where multiple LDOs may be required.
Keeping the power supply inputs on separate domains can minimize crosstalk and make it much harder for noise to interfere with ADC performance.
As is typically the case, at least from my observance in the last four years, the second day of the show proved to be the busiest.
